Our family has returned from a few days away of spending time with family in Ireland. We had a fantastic time catching up, playing games and drinking lots of coffee with Dena’s parents, sister and brother-in-law. Eli loved being the center of attention among an audience of 6!

We love every opportunity we have to visit Ireland. The smell of peat fires seems to hit you immediately as you exit whatever airport you have chosen to fly into. It may be the nature of vacation, but for the most part, life in Ireland seems to have a slower pace. That is something our family really needed after our first six months in Glasgow. Here are a few photos from our time away.
